Pretty paper tea party
Sometimes summertime calls for a spot of tea! Turn your kids loose designing their own paper tea party, complete with cups, saucers, hats and more. No actual tea will be harmed in the making of this party, so table those fears of spilled milk and soggy teddy bears—and enjoy.
Calling all heroes! Kids will have a blast transforming themselves into daring do-gooders with this cape and mask craft. Choose from an easy no-sew version using a T-shirt or a durable sewn version with ties at the neck. Design your own logo—or use one of ours—and then add it to one of the capes. No superpowers are required—except imagination, of course.
